City Living, Country Serenity

Northlands Property Group expands its development of the greater Avianto Estate by extending its residential offering to include multi-generational living opportunities – from young families and professionals to retirees.

Cradled in Muldersdrift, an area of pristine natural beauty, lies Avianto Estate – a primary lifestyle development that offers residents an unrivalled country experience, world-class facilities, and the city on its doorstep.

Having broken ground in 2013, the developer, Darin D’Oliveira (Founder and Executive Chairman of the Northlands Group), enticed the market with the spectacularly appointed Le Jardin development – 115 freehold stands in the heart of the Avianto Estate. The Estate will be further expanding to include a variety of developments; from full-title freehold stands to plot-and-plan, and sectional-title opportunities. “Each of these developments offer something unique to the buyer,” says Leonhard Jonas (CEO of Avianto Estate). “Whether you are a young family starting out, or a retiree in search of a low-maintenance home that doesn’t sacrifice on aesthetics, Avianto Estate has something for everyone.”

Featuring sprawling lawns, lush canopies of indigenous trees, the Crocodile River that lazily meanders through the locality and architecture that nods to the European country way of life, Avianto Estate is a picturesque and charming oasis of calm away from the hustle of the city. Located along the main arterial routes linking Krugersdorp to Pretoria, with Lanseria Airport a mere 16 minutes away, Avianto Estate combines rural appeal with modern convenience.

“When the developer set about planning the Estate, the most important aspect was creating a haven of safety and accessibility for the residents, whilst preserving the environment that makes it so special,” explains Jonas. “The Muldersdrift area is bountiful in terms of natural resources, as such he wanted to harness it and build the Estate around it. The aim was to create something authentic that blends seamlessly with the surrounds, whilst providing residents with the opportunity to celebrate every aspect of their lives in a beautiful, humble setting,” he enthuses.

This multi-faceted development not only affords residents a base from which to work and live, but through its numerous nodes, residents are offered a variety of activities, all within the protected confines of the 300-hectare Estate. Picnic spots, a kids play park, off-leash Bark Park, catch-and-release fishing dams, and hiking and biking trails weave through the Estate, encouraging residents to enjoy the abundance of flora and fauna the area has to offer. A well-appointed sports club, with tennis and squash courts and an outdoor gym, along with Pilates and yoga studios inspires an active lifestyle. Construction of a heated indoor swimming pool and gym will commence next year.

Residents and guests are spoilt for choice. Not only does Avianto Estate provide incredible outdoor pursuits, but it also offers wonderful dining options and a micro-distillery. The public is also welcome to enjoy the various activities provided with plans to introduce outdoor movie nights, an indigenous nursery with farm-to-table produce, farmers markets, a state-of-the-art play park, and concerts along the banks of the Crocodile River.

“Family living is one of the hallmarks of this Estate,” says Jonas. “Along with the freedom that this community provides, we have ensured that we offer an excellent school to match. The Avianto Estate Private School offers a holistic educational experience and well-balanced curriculum to the pre- and primary school-going children right here in the Estate. Within walking distance and zero enrolment fees, residents can have peace of mind that their children are being educated in a safe and nurturing environment. We are also in close proximity to a number of top educational institutions and medical facilities,” he continues.

Globally there has been a shift in how people want to live and work. Previously the luxury of space, low-density living and access to world-class education and amenities was reserved for the affluent market. Avianto Estate provides an attainable and affordable solution that does not compromise on lifestyle. “We have heavily invested in the best security system courtesy of SYSControl Secure and SMS guards, as well as intensive infrastructure and road upgrades to ensure the development will be sustainable for generations to come. Avianto Estate is a place to lay roots, where families will grow and enjoy life, in a secure environment,” concludes Jonas.

Underpinning the entire development is the unwavering commitment to sustainability. Smart water meters, installed in all homes, provide exact real-time monitoring of daily consumption, and assists homeowners with leak and burst alarms. All new homes built on Avianto Estate are furthermore encouraged to have plumbing structures, which support grey water systems. Solar, water heating, LED lighting, and solar energy plants are also provided to all sectional title developments. Additionally, the Estate has implemented a number of green living practices for its residents, from recycling to the rehabilitation of the Crocodile River.

Future developments that will be rolled out in the coming months, include Verona, comprising of 73 turnkey opportunities and 89 sectional-title stands which has recently been launched, followed by San Donato, comprising of 164 sectional title units. Avianto Estate will also be offering Valencia – a scenic retirement village with assisted living facilities, set in the tranquil countryside overlooking a natural water course. Ardenza presents 227 freehold stands set along the picturesque dams and streams, where owners can build their dream home. Lastly, Equestria – a development which will allow for affordable equestrian living with stables, paddocks, and horse trails.

Avianto Estate combines the serenity of country living with the diverse lifestyle needs of the residents that call it home. In this community, friendships are forged, nature is explored, and children are encouraged to live their best life.
